"She is the banshee in the night that forces you to stare at your fears head on until you confront yourself.
She is the acceptance that darkness does not equate to evil and Light does not equate to good.
She is the ancient, primal blood that pulses through the heart and soul of the Earth, the mystery of the Ravens that shapeshift through time and the Wolves that howl and hunt and bring us home."
